producing toxins that damage your cells
42 of 77
Give one way that fungi can cause disease
the hyphae can grow and penetrate the skin causing diseases
43 of 77
how does tobacco mosaic virus affect a plants growth
the leaves become discoloured so photosynthesis can't be carried out affecting photosynthesis
44 of 77
How are mosquitoes involved in the spread of malaria?
they pick up the posits from an infected animal then every time it feeds on something else it infects it
45 of 77

49 of 77
Give one pro and one con of vaccination
can prevent big outbreaks of disease , possibility of a bad reaction
50 of 77
why is it difficult to develop drugs that kill viruses without also damaging body tissues?
because viruses reproduce using your body cells
51 of 77

identical antibodies
55 of 77
Where are the B lymphocytes taken from when making monoclonal antibodies?
from a mouse
56 of 77
Why might a fluorescent dye be added to a monoclonal antibody?
to detect the monoclonal antibodies because the antibodies bind to the dye

61 of 77
Where in a plant cell does photosynthesis take place?
62 of 77
How is energy transferred to a plant from its environment for photosynthesis?
in an endothermic reaction
63 of 77
What is an endothermic reaction?
energy is transferred from the environment in the process
64 of 77
What is the work equation for photosynthesis?
carbon dioxide + water = glucose + oxygen
65 of 77
What type of molecule is formed from combining glucose molecules with nitrate ions?
amino acids
66 of 77
why do plants store glucose as starch
because starch is insoluble
67 of 77
What is meant by a limiting factor of photosynthesis?
stopping from photosynthesis happening any faster
68 of 77
What effect would low carbon dioxide concentration have on the rate of photosynthesis?
slows the rate of photosynthesis down
69 of 77
What effect would a temperature above 45 celsius have on the rate of photosynthesis?
the enzymes it needs for photosynthesis will be damaged so no photosynthesis will occur
70 of 77
In the inverse square law how are light intensity and distance linked?
as distance increases the light intensity decreases this means there inversely proportional
71 of 77
Give one way that the level of carbon dioxide can be increased in a greenhouse
using a paraffin heater as when it burns it makes carbon dioxide
72 of 77
what is respiration?
the process of transferring energy from glucose
